The Merchants of Shameen by Robin Hutcheon

The Story of Deacon & Co

"The Merchants of Shameen " is both a history of a long established British company and a glimpse of the fascinating past of Shameen, the former foreign concession in the city of Canton, now known as Guangzhou. Its fortunes have been linked to those of Hong Kong from 1841 and it was the third point in the triangle of Western trade and contracts with China, including the Portuguese territory of Macau. As this colonial era draws to an end, the history of Deacon & Co. Ltd throws light on hte lesser known point in the triangle. Shameen and the live of the Western merchants and traders, through the eyes of those who lived there.
